Iran blames USA for regional instability, creation of IS

The Daesh Takfiri terrorist group has claimed responsibility for the attacks.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei blamed USA for the creation of ISIS and also said that it's fight against Islamic State is a lie.

Earlier, Iranian Parliamentary Speaker Ali Larijani accused Washington of being an ally of Islamic State in the region.

Zarif's remarks came in the wake of deadly attacks on Iran's parliament and the tomb of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini in Tehran on June 7.

"Qatar is a partner of the United Kingdom in the fight against terrorism but they urgently need to do more to address support for extremist groups, building on the steps they have already taken", Johnson said.

Minister Zarif and High Representative Mogherini exchanged views on global and regional issues as well as the nuclear accord, officially called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), in the Norwegian capital, Oslo, on Monday.

On Tehran's enmity with Washington, the Iranian leader said "Some of the problems with the USA are essentially unresolvable as the US's problem with us has nothing to do with nuclear energy or human rights, their problem is with the principle of the Islamic Republic".

DUP to support minority Tory government after 'confidence and supply' deal reached
Following talks between Mrs May and the DUP on Saturday night, a second statement confirmed that no final deal had been reached. Just 15 per cent believe it is more likely, 17 per cent think it hasn't made it more or less likely and 13 per cent are unsure.

Promoting security in neighboring countries and the wider region is a foreign policy priority of the government in Tehran and the security of all Middle East nations, including Saudi Arabia, is important for the Islamic Republic, says the foreign minister.

Riyadh has severed its diplomatic relations with Iran.

The Iranian leader also said the USA and Saudi Arabia are in partnership when it comes to funding Sunni militants. Authorities have arrested as many as 41 people suspected of links to the terror group.

The terrorist acts included the assassination of high-profile Iranian officials as well as the killing of ordinary citizens, he said.

Zarif said the US's failure to honor its obligations was not a new issue and that Iran had little economic interaction with the USA beyond the purchases of aircraft, which he said proceeded well despite the US's failure to perform in other areas.

But al Thani disputed that Monday, saying that "if the problem is Iran, why have those measures been taken against Qatar, why not taken against Iran?" If U.S. rates rise, Saudi Arabia is seen likely to follow suit with its rates because the country's currency is pegged to the dollar.
